Cowboy Beans

Cowboy Beans is one of our favorite recipes for the 4th of July. My MIL always makes these and we love this hearty side dish. The best part is that you can start them and then head out to enjoy the parade and they are done when you return! We serve them as a side dish with potato salad and burgers. I hope you enjoy this easy crockpot side dish!
